1998 528i Speedometer Not working!

I have a BMW 528i and the Speedometer isn't working. All I found while searching around was that it could be the ABS Sensor or the DSC Module. Are these the two possiblities? I heard that if it is the DSC Module, I can get it rebuilt. If it's the ABS Speed Sensor I'll replace that myself. Any suggestions as to what it would be?

I'm at school now driving my Jeep. The BMW is at home and I'll be home at around 5:30. I'll check and see what lights are on/off.

Will bringing it to advanced auto parts help tell me what's happening? I don't feel like going to the dealership where the rate is $150 to do a Diagnostic check.

Everything else works great. Nothing else is wrong with the car except for the Speedometer not working.
